Pattern Magic Stretch Fabrics - Tomoko Nakamichi - Book
A garment in stretch fabric can be anything your body makes it.
Once you put your arms through,the fabric adapts freely to emphasize your silhouette.
This book, then, is as much about wearing garments as about exalting the merits of making them.
It is about garments that offer a sense of freedom beyond the scribbles and calculations that we do in our minds.
Interpreting garments that take shape as if by magic is fun and just like playing a game.
